Errit description

Holiday home
Errit is a splendid large detached cottage close to the village of Loughglynn near to the town of Ballaghaderreen in County Roscommon. The cottage can sleep fifteen people in six bedrooms, two double, one ground floor twin, one ground floor single, one family room with one double and one single and another family room with one double and two singles. There's also two shower rooms and one bathroom. The rest of the cottage is made up of a kitchen with breakfast bar, dining room, and two sitting rooms; one with a stove and one with an open fire. To the outside of the cottage is ample off road parking and patios to the front and rear with furniture. Errit is set in lovely countryside in this fabulous part of Ireland.

This cosy village is home to two shops and two friendly pubs and is surrounded by a total of six lakes making this a paradise for anglers. Loughglynn provided an excellent base for touring the region and within half an hour drive is Knock Airport and the vibrant town of Roscommon.

The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores.

We stayed at Errit for a week at the end of August into September. We were a family of eight and we could not ask for a more perfect time. It was a beautiful base for our trip down memory lane with my Mum and Dad who were born there. We spent lots of quality family time playing the numerous board games that are at the house. It was lovely. Thank you for a lovely stay at a perfect home...

Lovely setting very remote - a little difficult to locate but worth it! Large / wide cars or vans the road is single track narrow and with lots of greenery growing in. We travelled with 9 kids and 4 adults, ideal technology free setting lots of outdoor activity and their time spent playing together running round. The house was ideal large spacious loads of sleeping options for the kids, all rooms excellent size. Very friendly wildlife; birds a plenty and beautiful little fox living nearby. Need to make sure you have all supplies as nearest big shop is a drive away. Lots to do in the surrounding areas all need to be accessed by car - with leaflets at the house to guide if you dont know the area well. We had a lovely relaxing holiday.

Loved staying at Errit house. it is a beautiful house. Nicky and Val were very accommodating. Plenty of room for us - we have 7 children, 2 of whom are married. they loved playing board games in front of the turf fire! Next time we will allow for more "down time" as we were off visiting relations every day and didn't have time to enjoy the grounds. We enjoyed the visits from the neighborly foxes, one of whom was looking in the window when the kids were playing board games. They had everything I could ask for in the kitchen, and the place was spotless! It was difficult to see the turn off at night- even after we had been there. We submitted corrected GPS Coordinates to nicky which should make it easier for the next group.The only drawback was I wish they had a per day pricing since we had to pay the weekly price for 4 days, this made it an expensive place to stay for us.

We had a very relaxing break in a picturesque setting. Very spacious and a perfect family getaway.

We used the property for an extended family new year break to visit an elderly relative convalescing from hospital and not well enough to travel up to Co Down. The number and size of bedrooms, and location on ground floor as well as upstairs was a big advantage. The downstairs shower and toilet was ideal for elderly relatives.The cottage is set in a very quiet location beside a lake. Waking in the morning to birdsong was very relaxing. Eating home cooked food as the winter sun set over the lake was followed by drinks and board games round the wood burning stove. Pets were welcomed, and Toby the dog enjoyed lots of countryside walks. Our hosts Nicky and Val were very attentive and helpful with directions for local towns, and instructions on how to use heating and kitchen equipment, etc. They made us feel most welcome and we settled in very quickly. We would definitely recommend the property and we hope to return ourselves later in the year. A real home from home feeling with extra features such as the balcony, lake views, open fires, ample parking, and loads of space inside to relax with friends and family.
